From Pizza to The Professional: Natalie’s Early Career and Breakthrough

Natalie Portman, or should we say Natalie Hershlag (yep, that’s her birth name), was born on June 9, 1981, in Jerusalem, Israel. Her family immigrated to America (Washington, D.C., to be exact), eventually settling in Long Island, New York. She was discovered in the humble confines of a pizza parlor where a Revlon scout suggested she become a model. Natalie declined the offer but took the hint that perhaps performance was in her future. She acquired an acting agent and pursued roles in theater.

Natalie nailed her first film gig with Luc Besson’s ’94 feature, The Professional. Playing a hitman’s protégé was no child’s play, and it had the critics sitting up and taking notice. Interesting roles followed, including the troubled daughter of Al Pacino in Heat (1995).

Then came the moment every Star Wars fan would kill for. Natalie was chosen to play Queen Amidala in George Lucas’s Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace. This game-changing role took her fame to an all-new level, elevating her place in Hollywood. The sequels—Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith—then cemented her place.

Making More From ‘Thor’: Revenues from Primary Career

Let’s break that massive net worth down a little. When Natalie got started in Marvel’s universe as Jane Foster, the astrophysicist in Thor (2011), she earned a respectable $100,000. By the time Thor: Love and Thunder rolled around in 2022, she had ramped that figure up to $1.2 million. As for her other roles, it’s not exactly clear how much she gets for each, but a safe guess is between $5 million and $7 million, with some outlets estimating her monthly income at $800,000, though it can fluctuate depending on the film.

Green for Green: Alternative Revenues

Natalie Portman is not only investing in up-and-coming businesses, she has focused on those that are all about social and environmental well-being. For example, she’s sided with a French startup called La Vie that makes vegan bacon. And the plant-based love doesn’t stop there. Portman’s got a slice of Oatly, the vegan milk company, and MycoWorks, a business using fungi to make a faux leather. On top of that, she’s backing Bowery Farming, a company taking gardening to the skyscrapers with vertical farming, and Ark Biotech, who are all about making meat industry bioreactors. These smart investments don’t just top off her wealth, they also ride high with her hardcore ethos for all things green and humane.

She’s also a big deal in the fashion world. Since 2011, Portman’s been the face of brand giant Dior for several campaigns tied to their perfume and makeup lines. Not only has this gig lined her pockets even more, but it’s led to her being hailed as an international fashion icon.

Notable Possessions and Philanthropy

Natalie has most corners of the country covered. In her home portfolio she has a chic West Village apartment and a rustic, castle-vibe mansion in the ritzy part of LA. She even once called home a sprawling 10-acre estate in Montecito, which she flipped for a $1.5-million profit.

And when she’s not hanging out in one of her lush pads, she’s cruising around in her green-as-can-be car collection. Yep, she’s saving the world one Tesla, Prius, and Mercedes-Benz S400 at a time.

But it’s not all mansions and cars to Natalie. She’s also got a heart as big as her bank account. Whether it’s pumping time and money into encouraging education for girls in Kenya with the nonprofit WE charity or helping out Syrian children in need our girl’s not all talk. She’s compassion and action personified.

Natalie’s Family and Personal Life

Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem, Israel, to parents who are Ashkenazi Jews. Upon eventually relocating to Long Island, she thrived in high school, which set her on the path to Harvard University. There she completed a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2003.

Natalie is also a polyglot. That means she speaks several languages, including Hebrew, French, and Japanese, along with English. Makes you feel like you need to step up your language learning game, am I right?

In the love department, Natalie has quite the story. She fell irresistibly in love with the French dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied while making the acclaimed film Black Swan. Sparks flew and led to an engagement in 2010, followed by a low-key wedding in 2012. The pair later had two kids: a son, Aleph and a daughter, Amalia. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that there is currently a rumor circulating of a split due to alleged affairs by Millepied.

Major Events

Natalie Portman caused an unintentional stir in 2018, when she declined an invitation from a Genesis Prize event in Jerusalem. People started assuming she was backing the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel. But Portman responded, saying, “I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony.”

Fast forward to 2019 and Moby, the DJ, says he and Natalie were an item back in the day, which came as news to Natalie. He later mumbled an apology for being a jerk.
